Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Advocates
MoMMA’s Voices is a national coalition of patient organizations and individuals with “lived experiences” – or those that represent them – using their voice to reduce maternal complications in pregnancy and the postpartum period.
As advocates to eliminate maternal mortality and severe morbidity, the coalition’s overarching goal is to provide a home and platform for the patient voice to actively engage in efforts to make childbirth safer in the United States. The coalition provides training and tools to prepare “champions for change.”
We look at cross-cutting issues such as quality and consistency of healthcare delivery, patient-provider communications, racial disparities, inadequate research funding, and other leading contributors to adverse outcomes in pregnancy and the postpartum period.
We invite all those who experienced, or whose loved one experienced, any of the leading causes of death, near misses and severe morbidity such as preeclampsia, postpartum hemorrhage, amniotic fluid embolism, placenta accreta, cardiovascular disease, mental health and other medical complications of pregnancy.
